Epstein and Friedman Directing Lovelace


Howl writer/directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman will next direct the indie biopic Lovelace.

The film, written by W. Merritt Johnson, is based on Eric Danville’s bio “The Complete Linda Lovelace” and follows Linda Boreman’s rise to fame as iconic porn star Linda Lovelace of 1972’s “Deep Throat,” and her subsequent transformation into feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano.

The story is told through the perspective of three interviewers at various stages of her life.

Shooting is planned for later this year.
